Island 106 Host Mandy Williamson Jumps For Kyleigh's Heart

Props to MAGIC Top 40 WILN (ISLAND 106)/PANAMA CITY, FL morning co-host MANDY WILLIAMSON who took a "leap of faith" last weekend to fulfill a fundraising promise.
MANDY faced her biggest fear to show support and raise money for baby KYLEIGH, a local two-year-old girl with a congenital heart defect. KYLEIGH has had three surgeries and needs one more. Her father had to reduce his time at the PANAMA CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT so he could travel with his daughter to BOSTON (the only hospital that does this procedure) and the time spent caring for KYLEIGH has not allowed her mother to work. They needed help with travel, food and other needs while making repeated trips to BOSTON.
MANDY agreed to jump out of a plane if listeners would donate $10,000. PD MARC SUMMERS said, "There are moments that we seize as broadcasters, that become the touchstone for our careers. This is that moment for MANDY WILLIAMSON. In the first minutes of the video you realize the terror she feels at what is about to happen, and yet … she never stops, until her feet touch the ground again."
